NJ – GUN CONTROL – Gun-rights case now before the U.S. Supreme Court could affect New Jersey law

There’s an old joke about a guy who loses his watch in the weeds but looks for it on the sidewalk because “I’d never find it in the weeds.” That provides a perfect parallel to the efforts of gun-control advocates. The perpetrators of gun violence tend to be gang members and other unsavory types who are not easily brought under the purview of the law. But many of the…

NAT’L – RETAILERS – ‘Politics of guns’ in America driving background checks toward a record

BACKGROUND CHECKS ON GUN PURCHASES IN THE U.S. ARE CLIMBING TOWARD A RECORD HIGH THIS YEAR, REFLECTING WHAT THE INDUSTRY SAYS IS A RUSH BY PEOPLE TO BUY WEAPONS IN REACTION TO THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES' CALLS FOR TIGHTER RESTRICTIONS. BY THE END OF NOVEMBER, MORE THAN 25.4 MILLION BACKGROUND CHECKS — GENERALLY SEEN AS A STRONG INDICATOR OF GUN SALES — HAD BEEN CONDUCTED BY THE FBI, PUTTING 2019 ON PACE TO BREAK THE RECORD OF 27.5 MILLION SET IN 2016, THE LAST FULL YEAR PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

VA – GUN RIGHTS – King George crowd cheers supervisors’ support of gun rights

AFTER VIRGINIA’S KING GEORGE COUNTY BOARDROOM REACHED CAPACITY AT 160 PEOPLE, HUNDREDS OF OTHERS WAITED OUTSIDE TUESDAY NIGHT TO EXPRESS THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE RURAL COUNTY BECOMING A SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY. MOST OF THOSE IN THE AUDIENCE—AND THE PARKING LOT—WORE BRIGHT ORANGE STICKERS PROCLAIMING THAT “GUNS SAVE LIVES.” SOME ALSO SPORTED CAMOUFLAGE HATS AND COATS, ACCESSORIES DEFINITELY NEEDED OUTSIDE AS TEMPERATURES DIPPED INTO THE 30S. RESIDENTS LINGERED IN THE COLD FOR 2 1/2 HOURS UNTIL THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS UNANIMOUSLY PASSED THE RESOLUTION, WHICH STATED THAT OFFICIALS WOULD REFUSE TO ENFORCE ANY UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN LAWS.

NYC – OPINION – Judge Andrew Napolitano: Supreme Court considering important gun rights case (VIDEO)

In a 2008 case called District of Columbia v. Heller, and again in a 2010 case called McDonald v. City of Chicago, the Supreme Court definitively interpreted the Second Amendment. That amendment was written, the court ruled in both cases, to mandate the obligation of the federal government, as well as cities and states, to recognize, respect and permit the exercise of the right to self-defense, using the same level of technology…

NAT’L – OPINION – The End of the “Trump Slump” in Gun Sales Has Arrived

EVER SINCE DONALD TRUMP TOOK OFFICE AND REPUBLICANS MAINTAINED CONTROL OF THE SENATE, GUN SALES HAVE BEEN DOWN. PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY HAVE REFERRED TO IT AS “THE TRUMP SLUMP.” BUT NOW, WITH THE NEXT ELECTION NOT LOOKING LIKE A SURE THING AND DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES PROMISING BANS AND CONFISCATIONS, THAT TREND HAS FINALLY TURNED AROUND. BASED ON FBI RECORDS OF BACKGROUND CHECKS BEING PERFORMED, THE UNITED STATES IS ON TRACK TO BREAK A GUN SALES RECORD SET DURING BARACK OBAMA’S LAST YEAR IN OFFICE.

NAT’L – INDUSTRY INSIDER – Will American Outdoor Brands Be Spinning Off a Healthy Gun Company?

THE BIG NEWS HEADING INTO AMERICAN OUTDOOR BRANDS' (NASDAQ:AOBC) FISCAL SECOND QUARTER EARNINGS REPORT IS, OF COURSE, THE DECISION TO SPLIT THE COMPANY IN TWO. SEPARATING THE OUTDOOR GEAR AND EQUIPMENT MAKER FROM ITS SMITH & WESSON FIREARMS BRAND DISTANCES THE FORMER TO PURSUE THE MUCH LARGER OUTDOOR RECREATIONAL MARKET OPPORTUNITY WITHOUT THE DISTRACTION OF THE VOLATILE AND POLITICALLY CHARGED GUN BUSINESS. WHAT INVESTORS WILL BE LOOKING FOR ON THURSDAY, DEC. 5, IS WHETHER AMERICAN OUTDOOR AND SMITH & WESSON WILL BE FINANCIALLY SOUND COMPANIES. THE SPLIT WON'T HAPPEN UNTIL NEXT YEAR, BUT THE SEEDS OF WHAT THE BUSINESSES WILL LOOK LIKE ARE BEING PLANTED NOW.

DC – COURTS – NYC official admits gun restriction would not have improved public safety in SCOTUS case

A New York City attorney conceded this week that a proposed law regulating where residents could carry a gun would not have improved public safety. “The rule could be repealed without a negative impact on public safety,” city attorney Richard Dearing told the Supreme Court justices during oral arguments for the first gun-related case the high court has heard in years. The law in question is a now-scrapped rule that would have required city residents to…

FL – TRAINING – Florida bill would require gun owners to get safety training when renewing concealed carry license

A new bill requiring more training to carry concealed weapons in Florida isn’t getting support from those who stand to benefit: The instructors. Charlie Strickland has trained thousands over the 10 years he’s been in business at Talon Range in Tallahassee. Florida House Bill 809 could boost those numbers. If passed, gun owners would need safety training each time they renew a conceal carry permit, and they’d need to renew it…

FL – GUN SAFETY – Loaded Gun Inside Baby Gift Bought at Florida Thrift Store

Veronica Alvarez-Rodriguez told the Northwest Florida Daily News that she and her husband stopped by the store in Valparaiso on Sunday as they were heading to a friend’s baby shower. She found a Baby Einstein’s bouncer that was unopened and appeared…

NAT’L – OPINION – We cannot rely solely on the courts to save the Second Amendment

For the first time in nearly a decade, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments on a case directly involving the Second Amendment. The nuanced and highly specific nature of the case also makes it less likely that the court, even if it were to issue a ruling, would hand down the broad support for gun rights that Heller and McDonald failed to deliver. Instead, like those two…

CA – TRAINING – “Everyone is a First Responder | Moorpark’s Covered 6 Provides Tactical Training for Public Safety

With tragic active shooting incidents occurring on local and national levels — including the shooting at Saugus High School in November that left two students dead — the need to protect ourselves and have the ability to help the injured is greater than ever before. “The world has changed — it’s volatile, it’s uncertain, it’s complex.

Bloomberg Trashes NYC Gun Regulation He Defended As Mayor

FREE BEACON.COM December 3, 2019 –  Presidential contender Michael Bloomberg on Sunday called New York City’s restriction on where gun owners can transport their guns “unnecessary,” despite defending the same restriction when he was mayor.

VA – GUN CONTROL – Virginia Democrats Filing Proposals To Begin ‘Confiscation’ Of Lawfully Owned Firearms, Second Amendment Reporter Says

AFTER TAKING COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE STATE, VIRGINIA DEMOCRATS ARE BEGINNING TO ENACT THEIR LEFT-WING AGENDA TO UNDERMINE AMERICANS’ CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.
